    You are such an amazing caring person. I can just feel the love and compassion in your posts. The pain and swelling in my feet is from the neuropathy and the arthritis. We are waiting for approval for Lyrica. Immovane isn't covered on ODSP. Sucks. He said he will increase the Restoril if need be. My other problem is I am high risk for falls so they don't want me too sedated and they don't want me to be painfree or sleeping too quickly because my body is so tired from all the trauma these past few years that he is afraid my body will crash. My docs. want me to go and lie on a beach for a week but Health Canada won't pay for it. So I sit in my solarium with the afternoon sun and play an e-card my girlfriend sent me of a gorgeous sunset on a beach and MY JESUS I LOVE THEE (my favorite hymn playing in the background) with my cup of tea. I could sit there all afternoon. Anyways enough about me. You are an amazing woman with all you are going through. I am praying for your situation. I pray that there is a breaking in it soon. If you need to talk I am here. Please don't go it alone or think you are alone. You aren't. I just pray peace over you now in Jesus Name. Oh yeah something you said. If you read my profile one of my motto's is a real faith in a real God in a real world. We do live in real world and we have financial needs and obligations and it is natural to be concerned, but we still have to hang on to God and His promises. What is great about this board is when we get together to pray about it God comes and moves in our situations. There is such power when we agree together about a situation. I am so blown away by the neat answers to prayer that we are seeing here. It sure boosts your faith. Anyways my friend, hang in and you are such a blessing to me. Keep in touch and let me know if I can do anything for you.
    Love ya

    of Health Canada not paying for you to sit on a beach under a palm tree! I have an idea for an election promise. LOL

    I am jealous of your solarium. That is the one extravagance we have decided to indulge in when we win the lottery. Do you get to sit in it all winter too? It sounds heavenly :) sitting in your solarium with your cup of tea and your favourite hymn playing in the background.

    You know, ever since I came back to this board a few months ago, I no longer feel alone. When I am stressed, I come here and read the posts and pray. I feel so connected to the people here. And I feel so humbled, so blessed to know that people are praying for me and my situation.

    I also feel useful now. Even when I am having a terrible day, I can pray. If I can't sit at the computer for long, I can print out a list and lie down and pray.

    My faith has grown so much and I find it exciting when our prayers are answered. I just love the sense of community here.

    Now we need answers to prayers about your sleep and your pain. You sound like you are suffering so much, friend. I am keeping you on my prayer list until something happens. I have learned to PUSH - Pray Until Something Happens. Hopefully Lyrica will be an answer. I am praying that it will be approved soon for you.

    Love, Pepper

    The government pays for the stupidest things. Anyways don't get me going. My condo faces west so even in the winter it is like July. So I don't have to worry about SADD. So the next time I play that song on the computer I will picture you beside me on the beach. Hey maybe I could sell tickets lol. Didn't sleep last night again!!. I just keep plugging away and do what I can and don't do what I can't. Today is a stretch my physio time is changed and I have to be at the hospital for 1030. I think I will treat myself to lunch and then I think my girlfriend is stopping over on her way to work. Still praying for your situation. Talk soon. Oh I forgot my pain specialist said I am a candidate for a nasal spray which is a synthetic "pot". It isn't covered but they are giving out free samples of about 3 weeks worth (only in Canada eh). So I figured if I can find 17 friends I could get enough for 1 year. lol. Would you like to be my friend. lol. I am down to 14 friends I need lol. Made you laugh eh?
    Love ya

    Sounds like a plan to me. Still not sleeping and still in so much pain. Dear Cath, I pray that things ease up soon. I have gone through periods of not sleeping and it just makes everything so much worse - the pain, the ability to cope, everything. Praying for things to improve.

    I had a rough day today. My DH is right back where he was a couple of months ago - so depressed and when men get depressed they get angry! :-( He needs to up his dose of Cipralex but is refusing to go to the doctor. He is in the exact head space he was in when I came on this board feeling so hopeless.

    That was when his sister was dying. Now that his brother might be dying, he has fallen apart.

    I am going to post a request for prayers for him - again. If they worked once.......

    I am finding it really hard dealing with this again, exhausted and in a lot of pain. I am going to post and then go to bed. I think I will do prayer night from bed.

    I appreciate your prayers, Cath, and pray that things improve for you soon.
    Love, Pepper
